All the tax dollars go to promote the look of the school. Expensive football field, nice buildings and anything associated with sports. So, everything looks great on the outside, but what happens on the inside is an entriely different story! Nothing great about the acedemic programs of this school. There is no focus on the teaching or learning process at this school. All of the work is sent home for the parents to teach to their own student. Doing homework for 3 hours after working 8 hours at a real job all day is not really the kind of quality time one wants to spend with their child at the end of the day. No time for physical activity or dinner. If your student has learning disabilities and needs additional assistance in the classroom then you will be provided with an IEP that has recommendations, but none of the recommendations will actually be followed do to funding! (Don't forget the part about the expensive funding for the football field that causes brain injuries) If your student is really lucky maybe they will end up with a teacher that complains to your student because he raises his hands and requests help too many times during class!!

This school is very close and it centers around the academics. School spirit is very much alive here. If you are looking for a traditional high school, Oologah is where you will find it!
